Warlock


Published 1994


Warlock is a 1995 platform video game loosely based upon the horror film series of the same name. It was released on Aug 15, 1995 through Acclaim Entertainment for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and Super Nintendo systems.

Once every thousand years, the sun and the moon align together. When this happens, the Evil One sends his only son, the Warlock, to Earth to gather six ancient runestones. When assembled, the runestones give the possessor ultimate power to undo the Earth's creation. Using sorcery inherited from his ancestors, a modern druid must travel through time to prevent the Warlock from finding all of the runestones.

As a druid, the player is armed with seven different spells that will aid him in his battle against the Warlock. Up to 255 spells of a certain kind can be carried, although the status bar only shows up to nine.

Upon its release The Post and Courier gave a positive review for the game, saying that the SNES version's graphics were better than those of the Sega port and that the game was overall good for novice and young players. The Video Game Critic panned Warlock overall and gave it a rating of "D-" with the explanation that while the game's graphics were good the game's controls and game play was poor.

In 2012, Complex included the game on its list of "The 10 Greatest Wizards in Video Games" due to the versatility of the druid player.
